This week's sketch for MFTWSC... #85, if you're keeping track... is good, but I must say I was a bit stumped in thinking how I'd cr8 my card.
Now, I have within recent weeks pre-stamped some images & even did some die-cutting. With "my" time being less & less as things ramp up at work, I wanted to have some elements already to go so I can still participate in the weekly challenges. The time I take to participate in the weekly challenges - with My Favorite Things & several other favorite stamp companies - is my refuge, my salvation from the real world & all the stress it can cr8.
That being said, this week I decided to use TWO - yes, that's right I said two - images from MFT's a la modes line of stamps: Hot Cocoa & I Need Some Face Time. Intrigued? Take a look at the card I cr8'd & you will see how I incorporated 2 ALM's into this week's sketch.
Bracket Tab, Monarch Border, & Lead The Way. I used dark blue (navy) cardstock for the bracket & arrow circle dies. As I worked on these elements, I kept thinking how can I make them stand out on the card. Then, as I began to place all the elements together - it hit me... divine inspiration struck & it spoke to me in bling & glitter!
Given it was a struggle to come up with a card using this week's sketch, I am thrilled with the end result! It makes me wonder what ever was a struggling with?!?!? :)
Thanks for taking a look at my latest cr8'ion!
